During Greenbuild, the FSC-US announced Coates Design Architects as Honorable Mention in its annual competition celebrating the use of FSC-certified wood in building projects.

Greenbuild 2010, Chicago—The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC-US) held an awards ceremony during Greenbuild to recognize the winners of its 2010 Design & Build with FSC competition. The competition, an annual program, celebrates the liberal and creative use of wood and wood products sourced from forests managed in a way that is both environmentally and socially sustainable, as well as the use of reclaimed wood products.

Two winners were selected in this National Competiton, and Coates Design Architects earned Honorable Mention.

The amount of FSC-certified wood used in projects, the appropriateness of the wood use, the creative expression and innovation, and the architects’ and builders’ efforts to advance FSC market transformation all were major considerations in selecting the winning projects.
